militarily? >> i think first of all, picking up on ayman's reporting. john kerry's visit to moscow this week and his meeting with vladimir putin, is the first and i think most important part of what the united states needs to be doing. which is to try to find a way to move putin. and it is putin, not his advisers, to the point where he understands that it is in the common interests of the united states and russia, to work together on a post-assad order that indeed prevents descent into chaos, which doesn't serve russian interests or american interests. if we can get that, then it becomes possible to get security council engagement, u.n. engagement, international legitimacy and cover for the steps that will be necessary on the ground. and on the ground, then, the establishment of a provisional government in territory that has already been liberated from the hands of the assad regime, and the need to establish essentially a no-fly zone over that area to protect it. the kinds of military requirements that will be necessary. arming of opposition forces is something that's going ahead. it's not c

to secretary of state john kerry's trip to russia. he is said to meet with president putin tomorrow. a lot to get to. and joining me to kick off the hour we have bill richardson. and nbc foreign respondent. you said the air strikes are in the cards. with israel's air strikes it makes u.s. involvement in some way shape or form much more likely, doesn't it? >> well, i do believe so. i think now that britain and france have joined the effort to arm the rebels the fact that the military commander of the syrian independence group has also talked about not having links to al qaeda. the momentum of the israeli air strikes, i think it is inevitable that we eventually will use some kind of air strikes, limited to protect some of the rebel fortresses but also possibly to go after some of the chemical sites which i think soon will be declared to be there by the united nations. and vulnerable. so i think a decision by the president is imminent. i don't think he is vacillated here. he said he wanted evidence. he wanted developments like diplomatic efforts with secretary kerry and the russians. i
